Ran my Catleap through it's paces over the weekend after getting it late last week... Stock power supply is hot, but works fine in the US. They added a little white sticker to mine to say it's fine for 110v, as the original Lodus(sp?) block only lists 190-240v range or something like that... Lowering brightness lowers heat output, and mine needed the brightness trimmed a bit anyway. Still, the block does run a bit warm, but no worse than many other bricks I've used for other devices in the past.
On a separate note, I did buy another 110v brick to use as a replacement, just in case, but it seems to have a defect. Not plugged into the monitor it shows a green light, all good. However, once I plug it into the Catleap, the light goes red and flashes, without giving any juice to the monitor. Looking at the pin setup on the monitor side plug, one pin is black, making it look like it was shorted out at one point, so I have to RMA it. So, I switched back to the stock brick and it still works without any issue.
And yes, the stand is a little wonky, but if you have a stable desktop and don't need to move the monitor around all the time, it's just fine.
As for quality, I compared the backlight bleed to my other old HP IPS panels, no different really. Off angle seems a little more noticeable on the Catleap, but head on, is just fine... I'm a glutton for punishment so I did do a bunch of dead/stuck pixel tests. I found just one, located about 2/3 down, 2/3 to the right corner. Would likely not notice it without running the tests and checking every square inch of it. So, as others have said, don't even bother looking and you'll probably never know if you have one...
Oh, and this was not the pixel perfect, just a regular old cheap SE from Green-Sum... Runs great, including full access to the UEFI setup on my ASUS Gene IV-Z motherboard running of an ATI 5970.. So, if you have one of the "incompatible" 5xxx series ATI cards and a modern motherboard, don't worry, you'll be fine. If you have an old BIOS based setup, just keep and old lcd around, just in case, but once you are up and running, you'll be fine.
As for performance, I keep AA off, and crank the rest of the settings up, and am quite happy. With this pixel pitch and a reasonable viewing distance, no AA is not a big deal.
Anyway, happy customer... Now to get a new backup power supply, just in case. ;)
